So we can start entering? Also when does the entering part end? When do the judges start judging? Lastly, when do we get the results of the contest?

Too confusing. :/

I was confused at first too :)

In the colour catagory, I believe it will work like this (correct me if I am wrong sincerely)
There will be one winner picked from each colour type, these winners will then procede to the next stage of judging. The winners will then go against the other colour types of their catagory, for example, the butterfly crowntail against the pastel etc. Next the winner of the whole catagory, that is to say the best coloured crowntail, will then be put up against the best coloured halfmoon/halfmoon plakat/delta/superdelta.

I think that is what sincerely meant anyway...I could be completely wrong!

What makes a good pet is an active, healthy fish who wriggles when you enter the room. A good pet is one who brightens your day and makes you smile when you look at them.

When you enter for the PET class, a picture of your fish looking healthy, happy and showing off their own personality is key. This is a contest to have fun displaying your babies to the forum.

Here is my recipe for a great photo:

-A scoop of lighting
-A sprinkle of patience
-And a whole heaping cup of love.

Mix together well and serve.

-Sincerely

I would love to see your avi entered, I'm not judging that paticular catagory, so I can be biased :p

Yes gandalf has a few floors (cough cough tailbiter :mad: grrrr) his anal is too long and his dorsal isn't amaaaaazing, but lily who is his girlfriend has much better fins than him! She will be breeding with pineapple first, while gandalf grows back his fins, which have now also gone down to fin rot __________ (pick any naughty word to fill in that gap) I just wish I could have him back the way he should be!I know he has stopped tailbiting since I got his 2upside down catfish buddies (the only two survivors from a spawn of the awesome guy at my lfs) so now I only have to eliminate the fin rot :)
